Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:There are many technique of foreskin transposition, which may be employed in conjunction with any of the technique for reconstruction of neourethra.OBJECTIVE:The aim is to evaluate the result of the whole penile foreskin transfer to resurface the shaft after reconstruction of neourethra by a modified Mustarde technique.METHODS:Sixty hypospadias patients, thirty one with distal penile type and the other twenty-nine were midshaft penile type, treated by Glenn Shepard modification of Mustarde technique to reconstruct neourethra, the whole foreskin transport and wrapped around the shaft.RESULTS:The minimal fallow up was 8 months. The functional and the cosmetic result were satisfactory for most of the patients with three exceptions which represent 5% of the cases who ended in complete failure and other complications were minor.CONCLUSION:The whole foreskin flap wrapped around the shaft to resurface the whole shaft including the neourethra may minimize the risk of fistula formation. Securing the neourethra to the corpora by several interrupted absorbable suture provide adhesion of the tube to bed and may give better chance of healing and prevent twisting of the tube, firm and uniform dressing is essential

Abstract

This study aimed to provide a comprehensive review of the techniques used for reconstructionof the medial canthal tendon in telecanthus cases and to analyze the most suitable reconstructivemethods for different medial canthal tendon lesions methods. This clinical study has beendone on 22 patients with a 25 medial canthal tendons (MCT) lesions and attended to Al-wasitiand surgical specialties hospitals in the period from February 2003 and march 2004. The casesstudied from clinical, aesthetic and reconstructive aspects.All patients presented with telecanthus and either congenitally lax or injured medial canthaltendons. Reconstruction of the lesions was done using four different surgical techniques dirctrepair of the medial canthal tendon (canthorraphy) done for four patients, medial canthal tendon(anterior limb) plication for six cases, transnasal canthopexy was done for nine patients withopen reduction and fixation of frontal process of maxilla were done for six patients. We concludethat desired surgical outcome can be achieved where there is bony attachments of the medialcanthal tendon.
